        Subject:        Agenda for TAG Teleconference of 19 February 2009

A proposed agenda for the TAG teleconference of 16 February 2009 is 
available at [1,2].  A text copy is also provided at the end of this 

Please note that there are only two substantive items for discussion this 
week, ISSUE-20 (error handling) and ISSUE-57 (httpRedirections), and we 
may or may not decide to actually go into detail on the latter, which will 

be scheduled for F2F discussion in any case.  So, there is some chance 
that the call will not go the full 90 minutes.  Please alert me ASAP if 
you feel there are additional items we should be discussing this week.

Thank you.

                 input (responses via email please) regarding:
                    # Open issues, TAG Finding drafts, etc., that would
                      merit attention at the F2F.
                    # Particular proposals for new directions or areas
                      of emphasis for the TAG.
                    # The best ways of organizing exploration of those
                      new directions.
                    # The best ways of using the F2F to bring incoming
                      members up to speed on existing work, TAG

                 Follow up on error handling thread (8 Oct)
          + Goals of this session:
               o Review discussion to date of issues relating to the
                 pros and cons of various ways of providing
                 specifications for error handling for processing of
                 Web document formats.
               o Decide whether the TAG has an ongoing interest in
                 woring in this area, and if so, with what goals.
               o Determine next steps, if any.
    6. [17]ISSUE-57 (HttpRedirections-57): The use of HTTP Redirection
          + Background:
               o Extensive email discussion on what is
                 the appropriate means of requesting and returning a
                 description of a resource as opposed to a
                 representation of the resource (and to what extent are
                 we clear on the distinction?)
               o [18]ACTION-178 (assigned to Jonathan Rees) update
                 draft of finding on uniform access to metadata

               o Clarify what we're actually doing under the heading of
                 this issue. There seems to be a lot of multifaceted
                 discussion, but it's not clear that we yet agree on
                 what we're trying to achieve.
               o Detailed technical discussion (optional: we can leave
                 for F2F if that's better).
               o Determine next steps, if any.
